Kaohsiung Harbor

 This amazing card was sent by Hsin Yu from Taiwan as a private swap! The card has the shape you see!

It pictures Kaohsiung Harbor in southwestern Taiwan. Kaohsiung is the most densely populated and the second largest city in Taiwan, with a population around 1.5 million. It is a center for manufacturing, refining, shipbuilding, and other light and heavy industries. A major port, through which pass most of Taiwan's marine imports and exports, is located at the city but is not managed by the city government.
Kaohsiung International Airport serving the city is the second largest airport in Taiwan. The Port of Kaohsiung is the largest harbor in Taiwan. Kaohsiung is the terminal of the Sun Yat-sen Freeway. [wikipedia]

The tall building that stands out is named Tuntex Sky Tower, or the T & C Tower or 85 SKYTOWER, and is an 85-floor skyscraper. The structure is 347.5 m (1,140 ft) high. An antenna pushes the building height to 378 m (1,240 ft). Constructed from 1994 to 1997, it is the tallest skyscraper in Kaohsiung, and was the tallest in Taiwan until the completion of Taipei 101.
